Stretching Out, Home Office-Style
Herman Miller's new chair design promotes sleeping -- or at least stretching out -- on the job.

Love the concepts. It really means anything goes, does it not? Take this ergonomic lounger from the Herman Miller Design Lab. Sure it looks awesome for sunning myself out on the deck with my laptop, but for working at a desk? Probably not as productive.

Born Rich says it is “targeted at the young digital generation, which has a reputation for living a rather sedentary and TV-filled existence.” Not sure if that’s such a super selling point for home-office users, but it makes me yearn to be young and immobile again.

I can’t even imagine my little girl arms being able to reach my desk in this thing. And forget about other movements—it’s got workman’s comp written all over it.
